Intego introduces Backup Express app on Mac App Store

Backup app runs scripts, supports volume sync

Intego has launched new backup software for the Mac, Intego Backup Express 1.0. The app will back up specific or all files from a User Folder, as well as other disks and volumes where the user has the proper permissions, and can be used to keep folders or volumes in sync across two Macs. The program supports user-created backup scripts, incremental and versioned backups, and exclusions for files, folders and file-types among other features.

Backup scripts can be generated to run automatic backups in the background, or whenever the user clicks on them. Incremental backups -- updating only new or changed files -- are available, greatly reducing back-up times after the first session. Drag-and-drop backups are also supported, and all files are backed up in their original formats.

Multiple versions of files can be archived, and the software also can sync folders or entire volumes across two Macs. Supported backup media include separate volumes on a hard disk, external hard drives and networks volumes. Flash drives, CDs and DVDs are supported as well as networked volumes, AirPort-attached volumes and iDisks. Disk images and iPods supporting hard disk mode can also be used. The app supports backups on HFS, HFS+, UFS, AppleShare servers, Samba Windows shares, NFS servers, FTP and SFTP servers.

The App runs on Mac OS X 10.6.6 and can be purchased only on the Mac App Store. It retails for $15, but is celebrating its launch by being temporarily priced at $10.
